In this activity, students pose several hypotheses for what will happen if you continue heating or supplying energy to the hot and cold planet models (Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Earth) and then test their hypotheses using a spreadsheet based radiation balance model. The activity supports investigation of a real world challenge, experimenting with life support conditions for Mars at an Arctic outpost. ... Full description.

This activity is about planetary climate. Once familiar with the factors that determine a planet's surface temperature, learners will use an interactive spreadsheet model of a planet's atmosphere to determine if greenhouse gases, luminosity of the source, the distance of the planet from the source and the albedo of the planet can be manipulated so that the average surface temperature on Mars or Venus ...

This is an activity about using large numbers in astronomy. Learners will first estimate how long it would take to count to a billion, if it was a full-time job. Then, they will judge their estimates using a calculator to get a more definitive answer. Finally, they will calculate the time or speed needed to travel to the star, Proxima Centauri. This is Activity M-7 of Universe at Your Fingertips 2.0: ... Full description.

This is an activity about the planet Mars. Learners will create cratered surface models illustrating different lengths of time. Then, they will compare their models with three different surface images of Mars, placing these images in order from youngest to oldest based on the evidence. Learners will discover that the oldest surface has the most craters, while also discussing what events could make ... Full description.

This is an activity about observing. Learners will look for particular stars, their colors and brightnesses, as well as important constellations in the nighttime sky. They also will compare the relative brightness of the sky near towns to gauge the levels of light pollution. This activity requires a relatively clear night with unobstructed views of the sky. This is Activity F-1 as part of The Universe ... Full description.

This is an activity about constellations. Learners will create a simple star finder using basic materials and learn to use it to be able to identify constellations in the night sky for various dates and times. The star finder can also be used to reinforce the concept that the sky seems to change in a predictable pattern. This is Activity F-3 of Universe at Your Fingertips 2.0: A Collection of Activities ... Full description.

This is a math-science integrated unit about spectrographs. Learners will find and calculate the angle that light is transmitted through a holographic diffraction grating using trigonometry. After finding this angle, the students will build their own spectrographs in groups and research and design a ground or space-based mission using their creation. After the project is complete, student groups will ... Full description.

This is an activity about investigating students' preconceptions of the Moon's appearance and its phases. Learners will first draw an image of how they think the Moon looks and then discuss as a group why the drawn pictures may vary. Then, learners will analyze a series of lunar phase photos, sorting them in the order they believe to be correct based on their experiences and ideas. This is Activity ... Full description.

This is an activity about Moon phases. Learners will use a Styrofoam ball to simulate the Moon, which will be lit by a single light source in the classroom. Then, they will observe how different portions of the Moon ball are illuminated as they hold it in various positions, matching the Moon phases' sequential appearance. This is Activity A-3 of Universe at Your Fingertips 2.0: A Collection of Activities ... Full description.
